UGH! I'll never get anything done ever again. Seriously, the last thing I need in my life is to be able to download free ebooks from the library! I have read three 170 "page" books in the last 3 days. Where is my comfie recliner, cat and a super tasty old-fashioned? ~PS, the app is great. :~}
Recommended User friendly and fairly simple. Once you're logged in all of your books and history are just a button away and searching is easy too. My only complaint would be the browse lists. As far as I can tell they never change listing the same handful of books in the same order.
Good reader, but it jumps to other functions without being told to Works great, but the designers decided to have it jump to different screens when inactive or offline, which disrupts the reading experience. Whoever is in charge of UX on the app was not paying attention to the primary usage - its a reader. If im reading and go offline, why make me restart the book? Even if its from where i left off, thats bad UX.
Sleep timer for audio would be useful Good selection, although organising the books into more categories and being able to search by filters would be useful. I don't know if this is just due to my library's selection. A sleep timer for audio books would be good i.e. stop playing after x minutes.
Poor reproduction of Print. Sepia mode is too light (practically white) and hard on the eyes., and only other mode is black. Really wish they'd put more work into their display.
Good so far. I have read 1 book with no problems. I do wish the audio books could read with the text showing as a reinforcement for my son (he has a TBI & I think it would help him with his relearning ).
